Hopefully this hasn’t been discussed before.
I was doing some late night Googling and found some FOI requests to what appears to be every county/District/Borough and parish Council plus some park authorities link here:
I had a look through a lot of them and most said they didn’t have any bylaws prohibiting UAV use on Council land, some had some interesting take on the regulations and one said they had no UAV policy but didn’t allow drones which is an interesting stance and doesn’t make a lot of sense.
However a large number said that they considered UAV’s to be “model aircraft” and lots had various definitions of what a model aircraft is.
I guess my question is is that a reach and using old and dated legislation to prevent both safe and unsafe drone use?
Sorry if this has been done before.
